Hmm... I can't remember exactly what was on TV when I was ten, but I remember some of the shows I used to watch.

Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

You could probably do the same flat falsetto if you tried.  I can come pretty close, but it hurts my throat.  Sometimes, when I really try, I can get that falsetto briefly.

You could build a time machines, go back and urge yourself to get a job as a castrato ;-)
